Organic food: Pricey, not particularly healthy, won't save you from cancer

The REAL JUICE behind leaked BlackBerry OS: Android apps to slip in without protection

Nuno

Choice

As a consumer, I would like to buy whatever hardware (cell phone) I like and install whatever OS I choose. Android compatibility would be needed, to tap into the huge number of available apps.

As cell phones close the gap to PCs, in terms of power and usage, I expect to have those same options.

I want to be able to use my contract with whatever phone I want, like borrow one if my phone dies, and I want to be able to use my phone in whatever operator I feel like, as in traveling abroad.

Stop this "kill the SIM" nonsense now!

A pre-ticked box in web forms should NOT mean consent - EU report

Re: Cookies?

cookies are used to give state to a stateless protocol. Without them you are always a new user reaching the site for the first time ever.

Of course you can avoid using cookies by passing the session variable on the URL, but for the user the consequences, for good and for bad, are the same.

Re: Big screen Mistake

I would like to see a modular design like this but, instead of a phone sloting into the tablet, a compute module sloting into a small screen (making it a phone) or a big screen (making it a tablet)

Ten... Satnavs to suit all budgets

Nokia satnav is great, beeing free, and allowing you to pre-download the maps. But, for route planning, it will need a gsm connection and, while abroad, that can be very expensive

Report: Nokia, Apple battle over ultra-tiny nano-SIMs

Nuno

That would be foolish

SIMs are great, in the way that you can insert it in whatever phone you want and access your phone service. If Apple had it their way, a software SIM, if your phone dies (battery, water, whatever), what would you need to do to access your phone service?

Dot-brand explosion will shell-shock lazy coders - ICANN

Nuno
FAIL

The bigger fail is

allowing non latin characters on the domain.

You see a domain printed on some magazine, you want to visit that domain, but you don't have a clue on how to do it.

Of course you can argue that, for example, people living in Russia already had to use latin characters to use the web. But they already do it! And they can reach ALL the internet using them. They can even reach chinese and japanese web sites...

Toshiba 14in USB LCD Mobile Monitor

Nuno

"Toshiba expects you to rely on the power coming from your laptop, which is convenient, and fine if you can have it plugged into the mains" - So, you don't want to have the laptop plugged into the mains and, at the same time, you want to do it with the monitor... makes perfect sense!

Asus pushes Prime pre-orders

Nuno
FAIL

It's a shame...

..that they opted to make the keyboard incompatible with the previous model.

So, if I buy one of these (and I'm really thinking about it), will I have to throw the keyboard out, when I decide to upgrade to the next model? It really makes no sense (other than Asus wanting to sell another keyboard)

LG Optimus 2X dual core Android smartphone

Nuno

dual core CPUs

They are perfect to Atrix-like setups. I would love to see a standard comming up so that I could buy such a screen + keyboard combo, and use it with whatever smartphone I happen to be using at that time. Upgrade the phone, keep the screen + keyboard. Maybe any phone with an HDMI port and an USB port could be made to work with it...
